Throwback Thursday on Thanksgiving

That’s a lot of th in the title today.

There’s much to be grateful for as a daily practice, not limited to Thanksgiving.

I am paying tribute and expressing gratitude for good parents. I found this photo today and remembered our Thanksgivings together. And apart. An inscription of gratitude for their friendship was on the back of the photo, written by friends Ethel and Coleman Ives who must have mailed them the photo. I believe it’s taken in New Haven, Connecticut.

Once, when I was missing my mother snd father so strongly, in the depths of grief, a counselor advised me to do for others what my parents did for me.

My parents set a good example of how to be loving and caring humans which I’ve tried to pass on to my own family. ❤️

Happy Birthday to my Brother

David grows the best raspberries. And The best garlic. You’ve seen the garlic on the blog before. He’s an excellent gardener, working long and hard hours every day.

I’ve stood in his garden by the raspberry canes. Picked the delicious berries. Nothing like eating a berry warmed in the sun. I can eat about as many as I put in the pail.

Happy Birthday David.

Throwback Thursday – 13 years ago

One of my favorites.  A sweet moment in my driveway, thirteen years ago.
